Dix Hills Hurricanes win Eastern New York State Open Cup for second straight year
(Randy Vogt / ENYYSA) – The Dix Hills Hurricanes blew into LaGrange on May 30 and left with the Boys-Under-15 State Open Cup championship for supremacy in the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA).
Dix Hills, from the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL), defeated the Pleasant Valley Cobras of the East Hudson Youth Soccer League (EHYSL), 4-0, in the final. Samuel Steinberg scored a hat trick and Nick Acquafreda added the other goal.
Dix Hills coach Jose Luis Rebay explained, “We put the ball in the net when we had our chances. Our team is used to playing together.”
It is Dix Hills’ second consecutive State Open Cup championship after defeating B/W Gottschee 99 Blue, 2-0, in the 2014 final. The two-time state champs received a $2,000 check from Eastern New York to defer their costs during the National Championship Series. They will be playing in the Regionals from June 26 to 30 in Barboursville, West Virginia.
